Introduction: Stress effects on students’ health depend on their coping abilities. Here, the role of psychological sources to cope stress is crucial. This study sought to investigate the relationship of coping strategies to academic stress in nursing students of Qazvin university od medical sciences.
Methods: This descriptive study had a correlational design. The statistical population included all bachelor nursing students of Qazvin University of medical sciences (300 subjects) from whom 164 ones were selected through availability sampling method to answer Endler and Parker's Coping Inventory for Stressful Situations (1990) and Gadzella's Student-Life Stress Inventory (1991). Data were analyzed by SPSS software V. 22 using regression and Pearson’s correlation.
Results: Most of nursing students had average academic stress (92.7%). Also, there was significant positive correlation between coping strategies and academic stress of nursing students (P<0.01). Furthermore, students used emotional and avoidance coping strategies more than problem-oriented coping strategies.
Conclusions: Since applying problem-oriented coping strategies to cope with academic stress is shown to be limited among nursing students, instruction of effective coping strategies to nursing students is suggested.
